Ghislain describes her as a bright, energetic and fearless young lady whom everyone in the neighborhood loved. She was likely the hardest working person any of us known.

She would go on to own a general goods market, a construction equipment store, a restaurant and baked good company locally known for its delicious pound cake. She built her three story home from the ground up before eventually moving to the US where she would not slow down. She opened up a general goods store in New Rochelle and continued her careers in the catering, restaurant and hospitality industries.

Every day Elsie put her talents and ambition to work, living her life to the fullest. She inspires us to chase our dreams with fierce determination and faithful devotion. No matter what was going on, Elsie was our source of positivity and sunshine. Popular and adored, she had an empowering presence immediately recognized by everyone she encountered.

On the 2nd of January 2020, God called his angel home. Elsie will forever be in our hearts. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend. She gave all of herself to those she loved.
